    你呢個問題我好久前也遇上. 呢兩個字並不是同義詞, 但其實好簡單.

    envious是解羨慕-呢個係對一個喜愛的人而說的.例如你ENVIOUS一個歌星.但你一定不討厭她/他而且喜愛她/他.(同時你想好似呢個歌星咁.)

    jealous是解嫉妒.-呢個係對一個你不喜愛的人而說的.例如你JEALOUS一個女仔對你男朋友很好而吃醋, 但你一定討厭她/他.(當然你也想係呢個女子.)

    總之一些正面的事用ENVIOUS,負面的用JEALOUS.

    JEALOUS:

    If you are jealous, you feel unhappy because someone has something that you want and cannot have or you feel angry and bitter because you think that someone is trying to take a lover or friend, or a possession away from you. Jealousy always involves a general feeling of resentment towards a perceived rival. The emotion is truly negative.

    My girlfriend gets very jealous if I even look at another girl.

    ENVIOUS:

    If you are envious of someone, you wish that you had something nice or special that someone else has. You may not feel angry and bitter. For example, you are envious of your colleague. She has just got a promotion ~ better salary and more responsibility. You won't blame your colleague. You are only angry at yourself for not having a better education or necessary skills.

    Judy knew she was beautiful and enjoyed the envious looks of other women.

    I’m envious of your new coat ~ it’s lovely.
